Liberator Performance Oil Cooler

Is this a competitor to the Bullet proof Oil Cooler

It is like half the price as the BulletProof

Has any one used it?

Well sort of. It uses the stock housing but eliminates the internal cooler and sends the oil to an external cooler. The Liberator oil cooler itself is a tube and fin design which is cheap to make and not a real efficient heat exchanger. The Liberator kit retains the oem oil filter cannister.

The Bulletproof Oil Cooler kit replace the oem oil manifold with a custom machined billet aluminum manifold. The oil cooler itself is a bar and plate design which is much more efficient at dissipating heat in a more compact design. The Bulletproof kit includes a remote oil filter that eliminates the oem engine mounted filter.

So yes the are both external oil coolers, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

I've also heard of AC performance issues with the Liberator kit since the oil cooler is in front of the condensor

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think it is the other way around. The oil cooler is mounted BEHIND the A/C condensor and the bumper mounted oil cooler kit is mounted in front of the A/C condensor; the bumper mount kit comes with an A/C upgrade of some sort to compensate for the additional thermal load on the A/C condensor.

Something to do with an orifice change and adding 6 or 12oz of additional refrigerant.

Which mount location did you go with for your BPD kit?
What was reason for your location of choice?
Gathering info to make a better, more informed choice when I eventually go this route.
Thanks alot

If you go with the bumper mount you don't have to disconnect your a/c lines and recharge.

IIRC BPD recommends the condensor mount so it doesn't effect your AC performance.
